Hamilton Co. buying apartment building in Boston’s South End

Hamilton Co. said Thursday that it is buying a 134-unit apartment complex in Boston’s South End for $52 million from Boston Land Development.

Hamilton Co., owned by Harold Brown, has been on a buying spree, snapping up $300 million in properties over the past three years.

The South End building is within the Northeastern University campus at 650 Columbus Ave., near the South End-Roxbury border. The parcel also includes 33 condominiums and a 141-car garage.


“These well-developed, managed, and maintained buildings will continue to meet the moderate-priced housing needs of the South End residents and Northeastern University’s student population,” said Carl A. Valeri, president of Hamilton Co.
